Sock frog

I've finally finished a sock toy! I've got several on the go and finished this frog last night whilst watching The Fifth Element, such a great film! I'm not sure that I'm convinced with how I've done the eyes on this frog, I've got another one to finish so I may try something else with that one and see which I prefer! As the socks are just plain green I added a little fabric heart to jazz it up a bit, I rarely use plain socks and it looked like it was missing something!

I now have suitable buttons for the owl eyes so am going to finish those next too. I've had enough of half finished toys laying about the place!

I actually finished 2 toys yesterday. Robyn has remembered how to nap during the day and had a monster 2 and 1/2 hour sleep yesterday, it was such a treat! I started and finished this floppy eared bunny and definitely plan to make more like her. Now that I have a decent sewing machine I'm enjoying mixing fabric with my socks and giving my toys a little something extra, it's great fun!

aww, froggie is adorable! I really love the heart detail :)
I think I can maybe see what you mean about the eyes but I can't quite put my finger on it...still looks good as it is though!
